About the Specialized Turbo Vado Sl 5.0 EQ

Fully Equipped but not Overloaded

This is what cycle commuters like to see, isn't it? Mudguards, rack, lights and kickstand as standard but all lightweight, slimline versions and completely suited to the frame of the bike and not hastily 'stuck on'. This is one of the most stylish commuter friendly electric bikes we've ever seen. You would be rather proud to be seen pedalling one of these down a Cycle Superhighway. 

Super compact motor and battery

This bike uses the Specialized 1.1 motor which gives 35nm of torque. Now, this isn't the most powerful motor you will see in an Energise E-bikes showroom, but this is a lightweight bike so you probably won't need much more power from your motor in an urban situation. The 12 speed Shimano XT gearing and DT Swiss wheels are also doing their bit to make this an easy-rolling joy of a city bike. 

Get stuff done - Urban mobility at its most efficient

All the studies of urban environments show that for most journeys in town and cities in the 3-5 mile range are fastest by bike. With the high average speed you'll maintain on a bike like this, and the high amounts of fun you'll have on it, why would you go by car again? 

Summary: The most stylish, most convenient, most fun way to get around town. 

As with all our e-bikes, you can give them a test-ride, so get in touch to arrange one at your nearest branch.

About the Specialized brand

This is a brand born in the Californian sunshine all the way back in 1974, so you can be certain that it has fun, leisure and adventure at its heart. We have been extremely impressed by the overall feel of these bikes. They are spritely without being overly aggressive, and comfortable without feeling old-fashioned. 

If you want a bike that looks special, you'll want to look at Specialized bikes (pun intended).
